I get very, very annoyed by people advertising religion. Last Saturday I was making my way to Hampstead for coffee with a friend when somebody entered the tube carriage I was on and started giving out leaflets. Quickly realising they were of a Christian nature I tried to avoid the man, and firmly, but politely, said my 'no thanks' when offered one. My reward for not starting an argument? A promise that I would burn in hell.
There is also an advert bearing some Bible message at Slough train station, and I do have a strong, but not uncontrollable desire to deface it. Does anybody really read any of this 'literature' and suddenly believe in either a) an imaginary friend, or b) an imaginary friend other than the imaginary friend they already believed in?
Admittedly none of these are quite as annoying as Phil Howard's 'Be a winner, not a sinner' speech that used to plague Oxford Street., but it seems that I am not the only one that gets upset by these things. It seems that the revenge of the atheists might just be on its way, see here and here.
